Kursinhalt

Learn about the fascinating field of liver transplantation

This course covers the history of liver transplantation, from early experiments in the late 1960s to exciting new technological advances in organ preservation happening today. You will find out why there is such an increasing global need for liver transplants, and look at the science behind the operation and the drugs used to prevent organ rejection. We will discuss the unique biology of the liver, explaining how one donor organ can help two patients in need, and how some people can eventually manage without any anti-rejection medication.

The course will be of interest to anyone who is captivated by human biology, transplantation, surgery or your immune system.
